[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Although it's really hot in Europe, we are in the middle of the summer, I decided to upload something that cools us down... (and of course to create nice winter mood for TL friends from down under:)).
This is one of the enjoyable 'black' slopes of Sölden ski resort in Tyrol, Austria. Photo was taken from a cabin.

a bit of winter in the summer, cool,
very nice!

thanks to refresh us with this white-black piste
wonderful in pov and good in sharpness

hi Kristof
i love the colour of the sky,the skiers are so small i had to look twice there like ants looking at the height of the hill or mountain i,ll never ski,love your border

Hi Kristof,
Insane looking mountain! Wouldn't spot me going down there, that's for sure! Haha. Relates perfectly to the season here in NZ right now. If they're people in the distance, they certainly put the distance into perspective. Nice shot.

with 48 C :) very cool with nice lighting, and shadow
and the clear sky, excellent POV, the slope is almost coming
out of the frame.. really nice idea and presentation..

Hi Kristof
You succesfully present a cold atmosphere by this shot!
Very nice exposure and metering resulting excellent lighting control
The frame is quite innovative my friend

Hi Kristof

I had a similar idea today. The snow is well exposed with good texture & the tiny skiers adding scale. Have a nice weekend!

as the heat even in Scotland has been hi 20s this week this shot is what i am needing your pov is realy good not a easy shot to get right but you done it again Kristoff tfs
regards bryan

Hi Kristof
incredible winter sports resort, well captured, framed and presented.
marvelous tones and textures of the snow covered slopes.
the tiny dots/skiers are a perfect scale on this huge site.
thanks for cooling the atmosphere.

Hi Kristof,

With all of the "little" people, this shot certainly puts things into perspective. They look like ants on a pile of sugar.

You've done a great job with the difficult light conditions and the various patterns in the snow are well defined. Nice POV too.

Best regards,

Hi Kristof, thank you so much for this very cool shot. So I can switch off my venti here, I think:-)This is really a perfectly composed winter image. TFS.
Regards Rose

Hi Kristof,
Great view on this skiing piste, like the tyne ants of skiers. Your camera settings are perfect, no OE and very sharp with the perfect brightness and contrast. Not easy to get such a fine snowy picture. Job well done!

Hi Kristof,
A nice refreshing capture to contrast our heat in Malta in a temperature of 34 degrees celcius!
Nice lighting and texture on the snow!
I like the shades and shadows and the bird's eye view!
Great work.
Best regards,
